Thinking Blogger Award

Thanks to the Hedonese, I'm the proud recipient of a Thinking Blogger Award. It's the first blogging award of any kind for me so I'm proudly displaying the award and patiently waiting for my cash prize which should arrive any day now.

Part of the fun of winning the award is bestowing other blogs with the award. Here are the blogs I've tagged as winners -

Ted Gossard who blogs at Jesus Community
will make you think with his daily, thoughtful posts. The one thing you'll discover as a reader is that Ted blogs with warmth and humility.

SamShua is a blog I've recently discovered. The host of SamShua is Sam Shin, a pastor on the West Coast who blogs with a heart for the gospel and a love for people. Do yourself a favor by checking out his blog.

LL Barkat, who I'm certain is a repeat winner of the Thinking Blogger Award, is a remarkably gifted writer. She's built a great community of readers at Seedlings in Stone with her insightful posts.

David Park hosts NextGenerasianChurch blog with a heart for the growth of ethnic churches in the United States. To read his blog is to expose yourself to thought provoking posts on the intersection of race, faith and culture - offered from an asian american perspective.

GoodWordEditing is a great blog for any aspiring Christian writer. My blogging buddy, Marcus Goodyear shares his wisdom as a seasoned editor and reading his blog will make you a better writer.

The participation rules are simple:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote

Thanks so much, ESI. Yes, I've been tagged with this before, and here was my response...

It's fun, isn't it, to receive compliments in this big cyberworld? Congratulations on yours.

I knew you were a multiple winner I had no idea you were a MULTIPLE WINNER! If there's a competition for the highest # of repeats, you must be at the top of the charts

Thanks but let's face it, it's no Stinking Blogger do I get one of those? ;-)

Ted Gossard said...

ESI, Congratulations. You have an interesting, thoughtful blog well deserving of this.

Thanks for your most kind words and tapping me as well. I look forward to doing something with that, probably on Saturday. I really wish I had more time to read blogs. Some of my blogs linked I would consider great mind stretchers in ways that help us grow in loving God with all our minds, some of those I don't get to enough!

I tagged you because reading your blog has been a blessing to me and I'm impressed by the gracious way you blog.

Mark Goodyear said...

You definitely deserve this one, ESI. Any time I'm looking for a fresh thought on faith and work, I come here first.

You're too kind in tagging me. Here's my response from a few weeks ago.
